Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 93 – Demands for community polls

106.This section substitutes paragraph 34(4) of Schedule 12 to the 1972 Act with a provision which raises the thresholds required for a community meeting to demand a community poll. The existing thresholds require a demand for a poll to be supported by no less that ten or one-third of the local government electors present at the community meeting, whichever is the lower. This is replaced with a majority of the local government electors present, the said majority constituting 10% of the local government electorate for that community or 150 of the electors, whichever is the less.
